Torchwood This Week - December 6, 2008

December 6, 2008 - Vol 2, No 48
The weekly guide to Torchwood transmissions.
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Australia! You made it! Ten HD will air Exit Wounds, and catch up
with the rest of the world. (Then UKTV Australia, which a few more
Australians can actually watch, will get to the episodes early next
year.) Otherwise - well, the Torchwood world is really hibernating.
I'm expecting things to get more interesting after the New Year when
the Doctor Who marathons and Christmas hype is over.
Doctor Who schedule information is in This Week In Doctor Who .

(not sure which time zone is being used - guessing this is Series 1,
but not sure)
Dear BBC Entertainment - I give up. Fix the schedule or I can't
provide the information here. Or are we really supposed to believe
that your station is Brigadoon, will only broadcast 1 day a year, and
you are sportingly telling us what will be on each year/day for the
next decade or so?
